The Evans families


1) Cornelius Evans and family


The Evans came from Llanishen, Monmouthshire and moved across to Glascoed in the late 1870s.


Cornelius Evans married Martha Griffiths - they farmed Glascoed Vach. His sister was Eliza Evans.


Mary Jane Evans (their daughter) married into the Parry family, who carried on farming at Glascoed Vach after Cornelius’ retirement. Thanks to Olwen Hughes for her work on this family, which has needed very little addition!
